"To rend one's enemies is to see them not as equals, but objects - hollow of spirit and meaning."
— 13th Understanding, 7th Book of Sorrow

Thorn is an Exotic Hand Cannon that deals Kinetic damage, introduced in Destiny. Its Exotic trait takes the form of its now-iconic Devourer rounds, which inflicts a damage over time effect on those afflicted by them. In Destiny 2, enemies slain by Thorn will drop Remnants, which upon being collected, will power up the effect of the Devourer rounds.

The weapon was initially available in Destiny as a reward for one of the rare Exotic Bounties, "A Light in the Dark". As year 1 of Destiny marched on, the Thorn would become quite powerful and infamous in the Crucible, alongside The Last Word. Both of these weapons would come to be reprised in Destiny 2 as a result, with the Thorn being reintroduced in Season of the Drifter, as part of the "An Independent Study" questline.

"To rend one's enemies is to see them not as equals, but objects - hollow of spirit and meaning."
– 13th Understanding, 7th Book of Sorrow[1]
Augmented through dark practices, Thorn was once a hero's weapon. Its jagged frame hints at a sinister truth: a powerful connection to the unutterable sorceries of the Hive.

The legend of Thorn is bound to the rise and fall of Dredgen Yor, a Guardian whose name is remembered with disgust and shame. The weapon was thought destroyed...but rumors of its existence still haunt the wilds.

"To rend one's enemies is to see them not as equals, but objects—hollow of spirit and meaning." —13th Understanding, 7th Book of Sorrow[2]
"The Weapons of Sorrow are not the endgame, but a road map. Each evolution, every advance in the delivery of pain and the mastery of destruction feeds the Hive's hateful weapons research. They will map every scream, harness every aggression, until they understand every method by which to ravage the hearts, minds, and flesh of man. And in doing so, they will turn us against ourselves—feeding our lust, our greed, our fear, until we become a threat unto ourselves like none we could imagine. So, wield these, angry reaper. Strive to know the darkness in your own heart. Walk in the shadows of fallen heroes. And know that you are an enemy of hope."
